Wilson missing for Robins

Cheltenham will be without James Wilson for the visit of Rochdale after his loan spell with the Robins ended.

The Bristol City loanee, who featured for Wales on Tuesday night, has returned to Ashton Gate after four appearances during a month-long stay with the club.

Manager Mark Yates is targeting back-to-back wins for the first time this season and he is unlikely to make any changes to his line-up with no injury or suspension worries.

Jamie Cureton looks set to start up front after scoring his 250th league goal with a stunning strike to set Cheltenham on their way to a 2-1 victory over Dagenham last weekend.

Rochdale striker Scott Hogan is hoping to return to contention for the game.

Hogan missed last week's impressive home win over Newport due to an unspecified knock but could be back in the squad, while fellow forward George Donnelly is pushing for a recall to the starting line-up.

Donnelly returned to the bench last week following suspension, but may have to bide his time if boss Keith Hill decides to stick with Graham Cummins up front.

Hill will not be rushing skipper Peter Cavanagh back from an Achilles injury, with the midfielder expected to be sidelined for several more weeks.
